Secunderabad-Rajahmundry-Papikondalu-Rajahmundry-Secunderabad (2 Nights/ 1 Days)

Back | Book This Package

Papi Kondalu hill range located in the East Godavari District of Andhra Pradesh is especially popular for their coexistence with the river Godavari one of the most dominant rivers in South India. Clean river water with the reflection of lush green hills and gentle breeze across the river is a memorable experience. Day long cruise from Rajhamundry to Papikondalu and back with peep in to the tribal life on banks of the river is quite interesting.
